An Important Update Regarding SpaceFinder Alberta

Updated April 29, 2020 – We would like to thank you for your ongoing support for SpaceFinder Alberta over the past five years, not only by listing your spaces and working with us as partners, but also by championing and promoting the project within your networks.

It was this support that helped in the success of the project.

It is our difficult task to tell you that the SpaceFinder platform across North America will be ending, effective late summer 2020.

SpaceFinder was developed by Fractured Atlas, a New York arts advocacy organization. Unfortunately Fractured Atlas will no longer be supporting the SpaceFinder platform. As SpaceFinder headquarters in the US is winding up, ArtsBuild Ontario, the head licensee for Canada, is actively seeking a new solution to help Canadians find space in our communities.

Alberta is the most successful SpaceFinder in all of North America in terms of space listings per capita. It has been an effective way to connect venue operators with short-term renters all over our province, animating venues and helping renters find the perfect space. Because of this success, Calgary Arts Development and Arts Habitat Edmonton are actively engaging with ArtsBuild Ontario to determine the transition plan to a possible new platform.

We are grateful that you chose to list your venues with SpaceFinder Alberta and we look forward to sharing our progress in finding a new platform in the coming months.

For those of you in Edmonton and surrounding areas, our partner Arts Habitat Edmonton will continue to be your contact going forward. Please do not hesitate to contact any of us should you have questions.

Rest assured—we are still committed to promoting and celebrating your wonderfully varied spaces and recognize that the need for this will be even greater once we are able to gather again.

What is SpaceFinder Alberta?

SpaceFinder Alberta links organizations with space to rent with those who need space.

Calgary Arts Development, in partnership with ArtsBuild Ontario, Fractured Atlas, and Arts Habitat Edmonton launched SpaceFinder Alberta in Calgary in 2016 and in Edmonton in 2017. SpaceFinder Alberta receives generous support from the Alberta Foundation for the Arts, the Department of Canadian Heritage, and the Alberta Real Estate Foundation.

SpaceFinder is a proven technology created and developed by Fractured Atlas, a US non-profit arts service organization. This online marketplace links organizations that have space to rent with those who need space. Our goal is to help organizations (community, volunteer, non-profit, etc.) and venues efficiently find suitable users for their under-used space through this online tool.

SpaceFinder Alberta is free to list, free to search.
